Peaceweavers: Callout for new anthology

Peaceweavers – Peacemakers, peace activists and radical advocates for justice.

Is a peaceful world achievable? Are war and conflict an inevitable part of human nature – or are there realistic peaceful and non-violent alternatives?

At Culture Matters we believe that without justice, there is no peace, and it is by tackling the many causes of social injustice and inequalities that a stable, peaceful society and world can be achieved.

We want to hear from those actively working for peace – whether at an individual, grassroots community or global level, working as activists, writers, critics or or creatives. We’re particularly (though not exclusively) interested in the following areas:

Conscientious objectors and alternatives to war
Restorative justice
Global peace witness
Peace activism
Peace education
Mediation
Humanitarian assistance
Radical forgiveness
Alternatives to violence
Interfaith dialogue
Challenging racism, homophobia and prejudice
Challenging economic and social inequalities
Disarmament and weapons amnesties
Peace and reconciliation work

We are seeking artistic as well as critical responses to the topic of Peace, in the form of original art, photography and poetry. (Visual art and photographs should be capable of being reproduced in black and white format).
